“Great application for the Sports medicine oriented Physician or P.A. Clear, concise instructions on performing the tests, and linked video demonstrations. Fabulous. Great reference tool to make sure you are performing the test as originally described. Only medical application that I have purchased, that is actually worth it. You will not be disappointed.”
